When this record was released in 1973, times were tough for Gene; it had been three years since his last hit ("Groovy Situation"), and it would be another three years before his next release. Unfortunately, as times were tough Gene resorted to dealing drugs and did some time in 1976. Thankfully, the man staged a comeback that included some minor hits (including a third remake of "Rainbow") and continues in FINE voice and showmanship on the oldies circuit. He can still create a state of pandemonium when he closes his show as The Duke Of Earl.
"Without You Here" is a song of great depth and features some of Gene's most restrained and smooth vocalization.
